Politics in 1948 and politics in 2019 haven’t changed much when it comes to ambition, money, power, and political maneuvering of the political supporters and jaded veteran politicians. Classic Frank Capra. Well cast with Spencer Tracy, Katherine Hepburn, Angela Lansbury, and Van Johnson.

This film is typical Capra: schmaltzy, idealistic, preachy, and corny, but also dark, cynical, funny, perceptive, mature, and brilliant. Some scenes run too long, but, overall, this is an excellent political drama, as relevant today as it was in 1948. The cast and screenplay are terrific. However, you may not like this movie if you are not a political junkie or history buff.

Not as good as other Hepburn/Tracy films. Try "Adam's Rib," "Pat & Mike," or "Desk Set."
